a city in south eastern va that isn't what it seems. you expect rednecks, but find that there a plenty of ghetto sections in the downtown area. But don't get me wrong, get away from downtown and there's plenty of country-ness.
if you go to north suffolk, which i call fake suffolk as it borders portsmouth closely and is a good distance away from downtown suffolk, you will find ritzy areas and brand new shopping complexes and healthcare facilities.
about 30-45 minutes from the virginia beach oceanfront, still not so far out there that you can't go to a bigger city and have a good time.
"let's ride out to suffolk and chill in the country. i hear there's gonna be a bon fire"
